The Daily Gets a Makeover!

Since I've got the GTP gettin' ready to sell I figure it's a good time to toss a little love at the 'Balt. While performance wise I'm pretty much done minus a custom tune...it's getting a FULL suspension/wheel upgrade this winter. I'm beyond tired of the retarded body roll, 4x4 fender gap, and otherwise not so great looks. Here's what's goin' on her this winter...

D2 Racing RS Coilovers
TTR Rear Sway Bar
15" ROTA Slipstream's finished in Flat Black w/ CF ROTA Centercaps wrapped in 205/50/R15 Falken Ziex ZE-512's
PowerGrid Sway Bar End Links
OTTP Spherical Control Arm Bushings
OTTP Poly Transmission Mount

Thoughts? Comments? Honestly...I'm just ready to SLAM this thing

Here's a few quick pictures of it now...since I don't ever think I've posted pics of it...and yeah I know...my camera = weaksauce.

Here it is, before tinted anything...


Then, 20% all around, tinted tails/3rd brake light/license plate cover...


Then, the rest of the pics I took today...enjoy.





4300K 35W HID's





For those who spot it...yes, I got involved in a hit and run on the passenger fender...douchebags. And the decal says: STICKERS MAKE THE CAR GO FASTER.

I swear I noticed like 19.87 horse to the right rear tire after install. Easy too.

looks good, I like seeing sedans done up, and also I noticed some spare tires u should have grabbed, even if they don't fit the Cobalt, they make great xmas gifts for friends and family

Suggestions besides D&S'd rotors/pads?

I know I can't do SS/TC brakes since it's 4 lug...and I'm not going through the mess of converting it...is there is a good upgrade for the Base Cobalt guys?

as funny as the tire comment is, the one resting on the guardrail looks perfectly fine

SS Body Kit! front and rear bumpers, and side skirts.


And 15" wheels and tires??? you will have way too much sloppyness when it comes to cornering, get some 17" or 18" wheels and tires to complement that suspension you will be doing
